McCoy Tyner--how could I leave him off the list??????????

What a giant! His left hand can do more than most pianists' right hand.

I saw McCoy a lot in the 70s---whenever, wherever I could. He played at the Smiling Dog in Cleveland in 1975. The Thursday audience was maybe thirty people, so I had a chance to talk with him in between sets. Didn't really know what to say! Dumb questions, but he was very, very nice.
